Click the image above for more shots of Tokyo Auto Salon's assortment of Evos.

There were three main show pieces gracing the halls of the Makuhari Messe over the last few days: the GT-R, the new Subaru Impreza STI and Mitsubishi's Evolution X. Autoblog Chinese snapped off a random assortment of pictures showing several different interpretations of the Evo X from a variety of tuners.

From what we can see, some of the aftermarket firms weren't able to get parts fabbed up before the show, but several of the companies featured revised suspensions, strut tower braces, new intake and exhaust components and a few other choice bits. We're sure next year's Tokyo Auto Salon will be far more important to the aftermarket and its customers.

In the meantime, we were able to find out that ARC brought a modified Evo X to the show fitted with a new intercooler, a complete coilover suspension and upgrade brakes. The team of HKS and Camp featured an Evo with an exposed carbon fiber splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser, but, more impressively, Camp integrated its new Computerized Automobile Multi Player, which acts similar to the GT-R's dash-mounted screen that displays a variety of engine parameters in lieu of a row of analog gauges.

Finally, Team Orange's D1 Evo X was on the show floor and at a Mitsubishi Ralliart shindig. The team's all-wheel-drive drifter came sporting a full carbon fiber body kit and wing, a new set of Enkeis and Lord knows what else.

      Hopefully the X in the Philly Auto show so I can see it in sheet metal for the first time.

      I'm glad you featured this topic. I'm loving what the tuners did to the Evo X - most of them improved the look by miles!

      Here's a thread I stated on EvolutionM featuring many pics of the Evo X in TAS 2008 - http://forums.evolutionm.net/showthread.php?t=318083

      I love the way the white one looks except for the winglets. This car really does look fantastic in white!

      This guy needs to get a wide angle lens, you can hardly make out the whole car, just a corner.

      CAMP isn't a tuner, it's a product made by HKS. It can be wired into any number of cars to display information on an in-car screen.

      I like the black ARC Evo the best. Looks understated enough to fool the uninitiated into thinking its an regular Evo.
